Raging Pencils

Looking for a specific Rage Comic and/or Rant and can't find it?

red rubber ballI would have much rather presented today's Raging Pencils 'toon as a Flash movie with sound effects and much more subtle animation but Flash is a dicey proposition these days. Still, I think the animated GIF came out rather nicely. Besides, it's a blast creating something other than a static image.

BTW, for those used to the usual Monday-Wednesday-Friday schedule of FLS 'toons be sure and check out yesterday's Special Edition tribute to 9-11.


are you registered to vote?Will you be voting absentee this November but don't know what to do about it?

Then check out the Long Distance Voter. Not only can you register to vote, and verify your registration, you can also request an absentee ballot.

Oh, That Mitt.

michelle obamaIn case you hadn't heard, Mittens flip-flopped four times in one day on health care.


President Obama does an Ask Me Anything on Reddit.com and is rewarded with a virtual audience of 350,000 unique visitors. Paul Ryan tries the same thing on Quora, gets one question.


New York Daily News prints a column called "Mitt Romney's epic incompetence." I think they're on to something.


In 2004 then-Governor Romney met with a group of gay and lesbian parents. His response?

“I didn’t know you had families.”

Said one of the attendees: “It was like talking to a robot. No expression, no feeling."


And remember the pizza-place owner who bear-hugged Mr. Obama? GOP-ers are swamping Yelp with bad reviews of the place. How charming.


Quote For The Day

"Pretty much the only people who think President Obama is a failure are the guys who think George W. Bush is a success." - a tweet borrowed from LOLGOP


Today's video: Hate the Mitt, love the Baby.

Republican Job Creation Update

republican job creation9-10-12 & 9-11-12: The House is finally back in session and the past two days have seen a flurry of voting on various bills, but they all ended on the same note:

"Motion to reconsider laid on the table and Agreed to without objection."

Meaning "Okay, we voted for this turkey but we're going to give it old skunk-eye once more before passing it along to the Senate."

Fox News fudges the numbers, a LOT, to make unemployment seem twice as bad as it really is. Yeah, that's fair and balanced.

Title: The Comic Stylings of Romney & Ryan!
Romney: What's the difference between Obamacare and Romneycare?
There's no such thing as Romneycare.
Get it?
Yeah, Obamacare sucks but that pre-existing condition clause is great, isn't it?
No, that sucks my balls, too.
And what's the deal with all these sick guys running around without insurance.
You know what I would do if I had a pre-existing condition?
I'd quit being poor and get some fuckin' health coverage!
Little help here?
Ryan: I voted for defense cuts. Except that I didn't.
Romney: Goodnight, everybody!.
